to the fundamental disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama. and that is that we will fundamentally change the focus of the economic policies. we will focus on the middle- class because it is when the middle class is growing that the economy grows and everybody does well. much as the focus on corporate america. >> i think the commission also. it is a privilege to be here and speak with americans. a good barometer here to see if this was a good time are a bad time in america's economy -- go to a kids' soccer game on saturday and turn any parent on the sideline and say how are you feeling about the economy and i bet you you will hear some fear in that parents voice. fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. did we just take a major hit with those investments? fear about how will we afford to send our kids to college. a fear as small-business owners on how we will bar any made to increase inventory or hire more people. the barometer will be resoundingly that our economy is hurting and the federal government has
. after that we will show you the 2000 a presidential town hall debate between senators barack obama and john mccain. >> this week on "newsmakers" jim jordon, and republican of ohio and chairman of the house republican committee joining us from dayton, ohio. here in washington, at nicole duran and jonathan strong. >> at the first presidential debate, mitt romney went hard to the center in temperament and substance. last night at the vice- presidential debate we saw paul ryan take a position on abortion that is more moderate than the one he had prior to becoming the vp pick. are you worried that this is the sign that the real mitt romney is moderate? what would you do if he embraced a simpson-bowles type plan? >> i do not necessarily think they moved from standard conservative positions. both governor romney and congressman ryan talked about the need to not raise taxes. they talked about the need to keep our defenses strong. they both talked about reducing spending. we're heading for a debt crisis. they both talked about the pro- life, recognizing the sanctity of human life and the fa
disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama, and that is that the -- we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy. we're going to focus on the middle class, because it's -- when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well, not just focus on the wealthy and corporate america. >> thank you, senator. governor palin? >> thank you, gwen. and i thank the commission, also. i appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with americans. you know, i think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in america's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "how are you feeling about the economy?" and i'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. the barometer there, i think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that
of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and we had to make some changes, and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. it has been pretty important to billings. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward. i hope to get to that plant somewhere in here, or i will address it later on. >> thank you very much. now tom to your question for representative rehberg. >> yes representative rehberg. you have criticized american recovery and reinvestment act, our also cut the ribbon on a road project that used stimulus. in february 2009, you credited yourself for securing $42.5 million for montana project and that year consolidated appropriation bill
, senator obama and senator mccain asked us to do one with the podium. they did the same this time with the governor and the president. we are not going to argue about the format as long as they don't touch the integrity of the format itself. we think a better format in getting full discussion of issues in depth of discussion of issues is when you are seated at a table, rather than standing behind a podium. >> no one is more aware than you of all the discussion, and a lot of criticism of the first round of debates this season and how jim lehrer moderated. the commission has put out a statement saying he did exactly the way he wanted, which was a much more open format. take us behind the scenes. since that debate happen, how much discussion internally about how to moderate the open format differently this time around. >> susan, nothing has changed. we think jim did exactly what we asked him to do. the only time limits, and they will be tonight also, and the first question is asked, the candidates will have two minutes to respond. after that, there are no other time limits. it is jus
minute. >> there are two paths we can take this in country. senator tester and president obama have taken one path. he's voted with president obama 95% of the time. what have that given us, it's given us healthcare reform. it did not reform health care. it added more people to a failed system. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. it is going to add as much as 25% to our utility bills. that is the equivalent of shutting off the electricity to 100,000 homes. that's entire city of billings. economics kind of we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. had a broken h
say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii
, speaker john boehner has done a good job in a tough situation. he has to work with barack obama white house. he has to work with senator harry reid. he also has to work with conservatives like myself and the republican committee. it is a tough job. he has handled it well. so much of what may or may not happen in the lame-duck session depends on what happens on election day. i think it is going to be a good day for republicans. >> are there discussions happening now between yourself and leadership and the house studies committee? are you talking about how to deal with these issues? >> we are talking about what may or may not happen in a lame duck session. what we're mostly focused on doing particularly here in ohio is helping it romney win this race in our states and he can the president. that is the focus. it is how we decide big things. right now we are three weeks away from a big election. that is our focus. there are conversations going on among some members of the house representatives of all and there may not take place. >> quickly on the ohio. you are in higher. center rob portm
the middle class even more. during the 2008 debates, senator obama assured us he fully understood our problems and he had the right solutions. he promised to make health care more affordable. president obama promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficit in half. he was so confident that shortly after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manu

[applause] in 24 days let's be reminded about what'
barack obama had the house, the senate and himself one party rule. if themed them -- they wanted to get things done like trying to figure out the mythical tax for shipping jobs overseas, they should have done it then. but the fact is, they didn't pass a budget then when they had complete control and they're not passing one now. guest: , look the republicans had a meeting after the inauguration where they made a clear decision to block anything he tried to do at any cost. that's been evidenced by their entire voting record, voting no down the line as guy pointed out. and the reason a budget can't get passed because house republicans will not pass a reasonable budget. they pass a budget with bunch of special interest and balloons the deficit. that's not acceptable and that's not what the voters want. that's why we need to kick the tea party out of congress. when we do that, we can finally get a reasonable budget passed. guest: i'm glad we're going to conspiracy theories on secret meetings. let's focus on the fact that the senate has not passed a budget. we can have every excuse in the b

that barack obama's budget was put in the house and senate and got revoked. that a stellar argument that we're going to talk about barack obama's budget because he's gotten zero votes in house and senate. when you are negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats of never figured out a way to get their coalition around one thing, especially in the house. we look forward to negotiating with them and increasing job growth. host: have democrats given up? guest: that is completely untrue. we've invested a lot of money in this district. the real story here is this race is in play at all and the first place. the reason it is employees because before there was a tea party, steve king was the tea party. he was the original tea party. this race should not be in play. this is a longtime incumbent and has been in a long time. it should have never come into play. he was checked out of the district and cared more about hanging out with michele bachmann. last time i checked, there is no border there. this race is in play and we are all in. guest: they're all in without any money. steve

the dream the act. president obama, nancy pelosi, and harry reid have the perfect trifecta. they had the senate and the white house, two years to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and they did nothing. they did not have a single bipartisan meeting at the white house. i do not support president obama did what he likes to do, an executive order on the dream act. >> thank you. >> you are not running against nancy pelosi. this is precisely the language of gridlock that is evident as to why we have a do nothing congress. one of the things we have to do is to realize that the congresswoman has failed to lead. she talks a big game, but she has failed to deliver. her language, when she attacks and attacks is very partisan. >> the next question. >> in your last debate, you refused to disclose your personal fought on california's prop. 8, which bans same-sex marriage. now that it is being looked at by the federal court, it has become a federal constitutional issue that has national implications on the legality of same-sex marriages. don't you think residents deserve to know where you stan
that we end up with the sum of governments that we have today. we have barack obama back in the white house, democrats are holding the senate, and republicans holding the house. can you outline what you would like to happen? the thing that would be the easiest if we had republicans in the senate and in the white house as well? what happens if you have to do business, and especially with the divided government we have had? how come to get things done in washington? we have not been able to get things done in the last four years. >> the reality will face us because of the things you have been talking about. we are either in making a big deal or we are not. we are either getting the debt limit extended or not. we are either keeping a more modest but fairly important economic growth, or we are not. those issues are going to bring people to a fundamental reality that might be the same structure, but i hope not. it may be the same structure or division of authority, but it is not the same time. with it. -- you can either fix it or live with it. >> if we have the same make up that we have, p
that when obama got into office, he got no leadership experience. he never voted in the senate. he rode the fence on both wars. he never cast a vote for or against on either were. he started his campaign as soon as he hit a house. he never did do anything. he had zero experience on being in the political field. he has not shown any leadership since. he leaves very strong towards withalistic society ways, the national health care. i believe he wants to take away our gun rights and hand them over to the u.n. for them to control, and to have them be in control of our constitutional laws. his moral fiber as a parent and a husband and a father of two children -- his moral fiber, he compromises to the gay community for votes. no husband or father would ever been his moral code to say it is ok for gays to be married to one another. if you tear down the moral fiber of this country, you tear down god's protection as well. why do you think we have droughts and hurricanes and tornadoes growing in a larger scale? host: we have a couple more calls. president obama, just a few minutes ago, in ohio. m
